• Stream WFMU Radio to your iPhone via web app

    New Jersey’s WFMU (arguably one of the best radio stations in the country) is now streaming to iPhones and iPod Touches via a web app. As it’s a web app and not a full blown application, it’s available to everyone – including all twelve people who still haven’t jailbroken their iPhones. The stream comes in two flavors: 128k for streaming over a WiFi connection… Read More

  • Spotplex Suffers Identity Crisis, Stumbles Into DeadPool

    We introduced Spotplex in February 2007 as a potential Digg killer that served up popular stories by monitoring how many people read them. Somewhere along the way, it also turned into an Alexa-like analytics service. Unfortunately, neither market worked out for them and they’ve been forced to shut their doors. The Digg-style service used JavaScript that was embedded on participating… Read More

  • Hands on with the $188K Steinway Lyngdorf stereo: For the oligarch in you

    Steinway & Sons, the famous piano maker, has been working with high-end Danish audio manufacturer Lyngdorf to produce co-branded stereo systems that you would probably sell your first-born for. The model I demoed today, the Model D, is a massive speaker and head combo that costs $188,000 — up, due to the current economic crisis, from $150,000. That’s right: for the price of a… Read More

  • MIT students demonstrate their Android applications

    This just in; kids that go to MIT are really F-ing smart. I just saw seven Android applications that have been developed over the short span of four months — with very little (if any) money — as part of a class called “Building Mobile Applications with Android”. It was a lot like most college presentations, except that HTC, Google, Verizon, Sprint, and the press… Read More

  • Order this beer pong table NOW!!!

    I played a lot of beer pong and flipper in college. It was fun, but it got a little unsanitary when people forgot to wash the balls after each throw. Drinking beer with whatever filth is on the table or floor is disgusting. My alma mater had a huge contingent of engineers and quite a few of them were in my fraternity, which makes me wonder why none of them thought of this contraption made by… Read More

  • Update: Mass Effect for PC drops dial-a-DRM!

    Yesterday we brought news that the PC version of Mass Effect would have a DRM feature that would phone home every 10 days to make sure you weren’t playing with a pirated copy. It’s a sucky system and people were upset. EA, though, listened to us bloggers and other gaming fans and has announced that when the game ships it won’t have the craptastic DRM system. There will still… Read More

  • MSI launches new pop-can sized "Titan" computer

    I suppose it’s a little funny that of all the Greek gods, MSI chose the biggest to lend a name to their smallest computer. This thing is really tiny. It hides a DVD burner, a 2.5″ SATA drive slot, 2 PS/2 slots and 2 USB, ethernet, and a real audio card. It’d make a mean little dedicated media or torrent machine if you had it connected to some network-attached storage… Read More

  • VMWare Fusion 2.0 Beta 1 available now

    My hangover is killing any enthusiasm I have today and hindering my ability to form complete sentences, so you’ll have to bear with me. If you’re into Mac virtualization then you already know what VMWare does. As the headline suggests, Fusion Beta 1 is now out. You can find all the details here. Here are some of the more important changes. 1. When it launches, VMware Fusion 2.0… Read More

  • Sneak Peak At Android Apps Out of MIT

    A class at MIT built some mobile apps for Google’s Android operating system and presented them today. CrunchGear’s own superblogger Doug Aamoth reports on the seven apps—loco, Flare, GeoLife, Re:public, Locale, Kei, and snap—that he saw. Below is a slightly edited version of the original post: loco Loco is a mobile social network built on top an Android… Read More

  • Official: PS3 will "probably" see DLC for GTA IV

    Downloadable content? For my PS3 version of GTA IV? It’s more likely than you think, at least according to Sony Computer Entertainment’s Reeves, who wouldn’t go so far as to confirm it’s coming, but was very vocal in saying “probably” to videogamer.com. Downloadable content is one of the things Xbox owners like to hang over the heads of PS3 fans when it comes… Read More

  • Is Pownce Developing A MP3 Player?

    Daniel Burka, co-founder and head designer for Pownce, has generated some buzz by posting a screenshot teaser of an upcoming release (shown above). From what we can see in the shot – a search box, an upload link, and parts of the words “Artist” and “Playlist” – it appears to be some sort of browser-based music player. Just a couple days ago Pownce… Read More

    Online retailer Amazon has some ‘splaining to do. Texas officials are investigating whether or not the online retailer has a distribution center in Irvin, Texas. If they do, Amazon will owe millions of dollars in back taxes. The Supreme Court ruled in 1992, that states can collect sales from out-of-state retailers, if they have physical presence in the state. Somehow the Irving… Read More

    Parallels, the virtualization software that lets you run Windows apps on an Intel Mac, now supports Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP3.

I used Parallels once, sometime last year, and couldn’t couldn’t connect to the Internet within Windows. So I freaked out… Read More
